blessings from the bible

"The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace."

(Numbers 6:24-26, NIV)


"Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything. With thankful hearts offer up your prayers and requests to God."

(Philippians 4:6, CEV)


"O my soul, bless GOD.
From head to toe, I'll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless GOD, don't forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins-every one.
He heals your diseases-every one.
He redeems you from hell-saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy-a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness-beauty eternal.
He renews your youth-you're always young in his presence."
